In the aftermath of the I-85 collapse, the city of Atlanta has been left scrambling. Gov. Nathan Deal has declared a state of emergency, and officials haven’t indicated a clear repair timeline yet.

Despite an effort to find ways around the dismantled highway, traffic congestion has skyrocketed as people look for alternative ways to work and school. With over 250,000 vehicles normally traveling on I-85 every day, these cars will need to go somewhere. Oh, and Atlanta traffic congestion already ranks 13th worst in the nation.

The shutdown left us thinking: Has the increased congestion given us a glimpse into the future of traffic?

Inflated travel times, stressful commutes, and an increasing number of cars on the road — this could soon be our stark reality.
